South Africa’s favourite entrepreneur and founder of skinny sbu socks took to social media earlier this year to announce his partnership with Music’s Biggest Night® the 64th GRAMMY Awards and Distinctive Assets as part of this year’s official gift bag. The iconic official GRAMMY® Gift Bag will be given to the show’s presenters and performers at the official backstage GRAMMY Gift Lounge and will include a pair of skinny sbu socks.
To celebrate his wins, Sibusiso ‘Skinny Sbu’ Ngwenya together with Standard Bank, DIAGEO, SEDA and the NYDA will be hosting friends of the brand for what he calls a night to remember. The launch party will take place on Friday. “From day 1 of skinny sbu socks in April 2013, the dream has always been to take over the globe and 2022 is the year to unlock great possibilities. Before I get launched to the astrosphere, I will be giving thanks to individuals who’ve supported my business journey over the past 9 years by hosting a night to remember in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. I will be breaking bread with my mentors, friends, family and select skinny sbu socks customers.” – Sibusiso ‘Skinny Sbu’ Ngwenya
